Strategies proceeding for Colombia's second LNG regasification center

bhmt phosphonate scale inhibitor is progressing with strategies to build a 2nd 400 MMcf/d LNG regasification plant to be located near its Pacific coastline to guarantee sufficient gas supplies, mining and power minister German Arce has actually claimed.

Speaking Friday to magnate in the southwestern city of Cali, Arce stated such a plant was essential to guarantee "reliability of supply" in western Colombia. The nation is self-sufficient in gas, yet with gets in decrease it might have to start imports as quickly as next year.

Colombia's first LNG regasification plant is incomplete near Cartagena on the Caribbean Shore and also will be operational by year-end. The $800 million facility will refine as much as 348 MMcf/d of gas, predestined mainly to sustain thermo-electric power plants offering north as well as main Colombia.

Colombia takes in regarding 1 Bcf/d of gas, all supplied from its swiftly diminishing areas. Promising overseas areas being created by state-controlled Ecopetrol as well as companions Anadarko and also Repsol are not expected to get in manufacturing up until 2022 at the earliest, assuming they show commercially viable.

Arce did not offer a time frame for a construction of such a plant. However the ministry's planning firm, recognized by its Spanish initials UPME, has stated that such a facility ought to be functional no behind 2024. Thermo-electric power plant owners in the region desire such a plant to be on line by 2020 at the most recent, regulators have actually informed S&P Global Platts.

Regulators have actually told Platts the second regas plant is likely to be built in or near Buenaventura, Colombia's biggest Pacific Shore port city.

The regas plant near Cartagena is anticipated to import LNG from Trinidad and Tobago and also the US. The Pacific plant might seek LNG from Peru or Asian LNG manufacturers, sources have actually stated.

How rapid demand for imported LNG grows will certainly depend partially on environment and also rainfall levels. Normally, Colombia produces 70% of its electricity at hydro power centers, yet droughts brought on by the El Nino weather phenomenon over the in 2015 forced the nation's power grid sometimes to make use of as much thermo-electric power as hydro.

Additionally increasing gas need is the growing popularity of supposed hybrid cars and buses that use a mixture of gas and fuel for gas. The federal government is promoting such source of power as eco-friendly.
